How Many Dumb Americans Can Fit In My Sony Flatscreen TV


Maury Povich will burn in hell.
There will be no fire,
just toothless women waiting for the DNA test

Who is the daddy?

He will find out Connie Chung is really a drag
Jerry Springer and Geraldo will join him.
They will fist fight, chairs fly across the room,
a gun will go off.
The ratings will go up,
another body comes back from Iraq.

The top news of the day:
Paris goes to jail,
and the war still goes on.
